    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    I was wondering if any of the old Songfacts gang (you know who you are) checks in to the site much these days. Every once in while I come back searching for you guys but come up empty. It was a vibrant and crazy place when we all joined close to 15 years ago and it remained that way for a long time. Frankly I miss it. If any of you stop by, leave a comment. I'd love to know how you guys are doing. RonJonSurfer (Ron)

Happy New Year everybody! ๐Ÿ’š I couldn't fight nostalgia... so I surrender and I drop by sometimes wishing I'll find all the fun we had...๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Hi All ! I haven;t been here for a long time, mostly because I'm still fairly computer illiterate and I have trouble negotiating the Site. It's good to see some of my great Mates here. Hope you all had a happy Christmas and have a wonderful 2019. Here's a photo of my whole Family taken on Christmas Day. I'm at the back - now OLD 78.

    Y'all thought you'd got rid of me But my life is meaningless without my Fin and Farin. Coming back here reminds me of all our time together, and makes me a bit sad. I don't know where they are (or even if they're still alive???) but I hope they're happy. (Joined at 17, now 32 and living a life i never imagined for myself !)

    Thanks Ange. I'm like an Australian Abraham Lincoln - the father of his country. Nice pic of you and your Grandson. Hi to a lot of 'old' friends whom I see have posted recently, Dear Edna, Laurie, Carole, Tim, Ken..... special congratulations to you. I also saw EYEgor drop in briefly. Had to get my DVD of Young Frankenstein and watch it again. Hilarious. Pity that most of the actors in it are deceased.

    I didn't join 15 years ago, but I do my best to *bump* the "All Things Music" subset. Ever since Last.fm terminated all forums and fan posts, I've been hanging out here to see if there is "Life on Mars." (It seems to be very sparse.) Folks in search of Music on the Interweb don't have many choices these days, between "Buy 'N Large" (Apple) or "We Think You Like This?" (Spotify). For really obscure music, I sometimes drop by CD Baby, if a "Toy Cows in Africa"-like track catches my eye/ear on YouTube. So now I travel the "Roads to Moscow" while "Dancing in the Moonlight," on the way to "Scarborough Fair.";) Patrick Abe

    Cave in Hall of Fame

    [big]Cave enters Aria Hall of Fame on his own terms[/big] [smallest]October 29, 2007[/smallest] [smaller]Source [/smaller] SINGER Nick Cave has accepted his induction into the Aria Hall of Fame, but it was on his own terms. The Australia-born songwriter last week said he was "dreading" tonight's induction during the annual music awards. But on the night, he was gracious in accepting the honour. However, there were a couple of conditions - that his band mates from The Bad Seeds and his former band The Birthday Party be inducted as well. "I cannot really accept this until we get a few things straight," Cave told the crowd at Sydney's Acer Arena. "What I can't figure out is why I am up here and The Bad Seeds aren't? "I would like to do a bit of inducting myself." Cave then thanked the members of The Band Seeds and The Birthday Party, the 1970s Melbourne gothic rock band which launched his career, for all their work with him over the years. "I would like to, by the power vested in me, induct these people also into the Aria Hall of Fame." Cave also thanked his mother, his wife Susie Bick and four sons. Later, he told reporters there were a few other Australians artists he would like to see join him in the select club. "Is Kylie in there?"asked Cave, who recorded the duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with Kylie Minogue in 1996. "She f---ing well should be!" AAP And there's a slightly older article on his reluctance . (I wanted to make the title something to do with "Cave" and "Hall", but I'm not as good as RJ at these things. Any suggestions?)

    Why does music move us?

    How sad it is to think that there are Human Beings that actually don't like some form of music,it seems almost impossible because music is universal and with so many forms that some toe tapping must surely be going on!

    Songs About Encounters With The Law

    Carl, Do you want songs that are completely about an encounter with the law...or any song, as long as there is a small part with an encounter with the law?

    I think the song idea would be easier, so we can just listen to the posted links. I don't know much about the past year in new music.

    The list would be near perfect if it wasn't for the fact that Jim Morisson in not on it That is unforgivable.

    Great suggestions, y'all. Remember, they don't all even have to be albums. We can also have a list of songs, movies, books, whatever I'm thinking: Best (or maybe worst?) Covers British Invasion (which could be best groups, songs, and/or maybe albums- hmmm..should we include or exclude Beatles and Stones? Could even specify decade if we want...) So, have fun with this - let your imagination run wild.

    Canary in a Coalmine-The Police

    Canary in a Coalmine-The Police Album: Zenyatta Modatta Year: 1980 This catchy folk song written by Sting. Miners would send canaries into the unknown perils of coalmines to ascertain whethe or not the conditons were adequate for miners to work there. If the canary did not return from the mine, the mine was deemed dangerous and work would be postponed to a later date when the mine was thoroughly cleansed
